Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop



Hello and welcome to my project for the
 "It's A Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop!  
Prize winners will be announced on February 15, 2020

Before meeting Lori, I did not know that Turner Syndrome is a genetic disorder where a female is born with only one X chromosome, instead of two, leaving her with life-long medical issues and learning disabilities. This condition occurs one in 2,500 female births worldwide, but is more common among pregnancies that do not survive to full term. That is why Turner Syndrome Females are considered MIRACLES!

Thirty-six caring Sponsors and nine DT Members have partnered with us to bring Turner Syndrome Awareness to the Public. For details on how you might win any of these fabulous prizes, please see Lori's TS home page.  Thanks for stopping bye and learning About Turner Syndrome


Nine talented and caring designers are offering prizes on their personal blogs as well:

This is the TSA official color board and since the butterfly is a symbol for TS

I wanted to incorporate a butterfly in my project (card).  I used the Floral Hear Image No. 66 digital stamp set by SheepSkiDesigns to create a large floral heart wreath and a smaller heart with a butterfly.  I kind of was thinking the floral heart was a mother and the smaller heart her daughter. 



For a chance to win the digital stamp set I used for this card, please leave a comment telling me something you learned about Turner Syndrome by Feb 8th. Winners will be announced on the "It's A Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop 2020  blog Feb 15th. 

I submitted this card to the current SheepSki Designs challenge, who's theme is hearts and/or flowers and can be found here.

If you haven't done so already, please visit the "It's A Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop 2020  page to become eligible for all the prizes and to return to the InLintz tool that will allow you to see all the bloggers on this hop.  Thank you for stopping bye and supporting our cause.

  10. The floral heart wreath is just gorgeous. Thanks for spreading the word about TS. As a teacher, I have been interested in the ways TS affects girls' learning in the areas of visual and spatial reasoning.

  11. Such a beautiful card and gorgeous image! Your colouring is beautiful! One thing I learned is that the average age of diagnosis is 9+ and that some are not diagnosed until adults. And even more shocking is that only 2% of babies conceived with Turner Syndome survive to birth.

  18. Beautiful coloring and gorgeous flower heart. I love the little story you have for the hearts. I just learned about this disease and that only 2% of girls live past birth. What a sad and debilitating disease this is.

  25. GORGEOUS card!
    LOVE your colours and THOUGHTFUL design, PERFECT to CELEBRATE the PRECIOUS relationship Lori shares with Julie!
    I hopped along last year. There are so many aspects to this genetic disorder that it is almost overwhelming, these MIRACLE girls face so many challenges each day with their families. I appreciate the opportunity to learn more again this year. Apart from many the medical conditions they suffer, as a crafter, it was interesting to learn that TS girls have an 8% rate of colour blindness.
    THANK YOU for sharing and supporting the Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop :)

    Thank you for your part in this important hop!
    Although I hopped along last year, I had forgotten that 99% of conceptions with Turner Syndrome do not survive until birth. Turner Syndrome gals really are miracles!!

  31. Beautiful, feminine and so perfect for this blog hop. Before meeting Lori, I had no idea that TS existed. I think the one thing I learnt that has shocked me the most is that these young girls start estrogen at such a young age. I always associated it with menopausal women, not such young girls! Thank you for your help in raising awareness of Turner Syndrome. Hugs ~ Lena
